Some Facts About G-Man on His Birthday

Most blog wives have nicknames for their blog husbands.

I have always referred to my husband as G-Man here on my blog.  Why?
Well, a friend of mine started calling him that several years ago. Why?
Because he worked for the Federal Government for twenty-eight years.

He started to work for the FBI in 1976. The last eight years of his career, he was a polygraph expert - YES,  I am married to a man who can tell if I lie tell a little fib about how much money I spent at the mall!!!
He retired in 2004, but still continues working for the Bureau as an independent contractor today.

Why I am suddenly discussing G-Man???  Because March 13th is his birthday!!!  And, I love him a whole lot!

G-Man has an office here at Blue Creek Home.  It is filled with things he loves and he spends a lot of time working there.   He spills out into the adjoining dining room and sometimes into the great room.
But since he is the bread winner, I don't complain - much!

I thought I would share a little part of his world at Blue Creek Home today. 

This was a retirement gift from the Bureau.

There are always two computers, sometimes three on his desk!

The names and the faces have been changed to protect the innocent!!!
I couldn't resist!!!

 His bookcases are filled with books, Auburn things, and family photos.

Lots of Auburn memorabilia

My zebra skin rug lives in his office

This is a numbered copy of an original oil painting by Cheeko Douglas
given to G-Man by our neighbor, one of Chico's current art students.

Cheeko is a local artist/teacher
I took art lessons from her for over a year
Alex took for about six months

Cheeko is from Japan - notice her signature at bottom right.
 I'm not sure what area she is from
but she visits family in Japan once a year.
I pray that they are all safe.

He had the opportunity to purchase this awesome .40 caliber Glock
which we have safely displayed in a glass case.
He even asked me to recover the bottom in a masculine fabric-

When we were dating, he helped me purchase my first gun -
it was the smallest little Smith and Wesson.
He took me to the firing range a couple of times
before he let me take it to my apartment.

I have to be honest.  I spent many sleepless nights in the early years of our marriage.  I worried a lot about his safety. He left his work at the Federal Building and that is the way it should have been. I knew he saw some horrible things during his career, but he always changed into his husband/father clothes before he opened the door at home.  Thanks for that G.  

Happy Birthday!!!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
